D - variable argument list

reply "Vathix" <Vathix kernel.net> writes:
I was thinking, it would be nice to have a type-checked variable argument
list. Something like

printd(char[] format, D ...)

Maybe the D there isn't a great way to put it but it could cause the
compiler to check the format against all the parameters in ... like it would
make sure the first %d was an int, etc. Or perhaps the format string would
have a different type or something that implied the type-checked variable
arguments.

I also think D should have its own standard input/output module. I'd be
willing to code it even.

It could be like a stream.File using a HANDLE from GetStdHandle without the seekable. Like, a couple objects stream.input and stream.output (maybe a stream.error too) could be available.

stream is a good start - why not see what you can do with it?
